If you have finished growth, you could be a candidate for a chin implant.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds
of facial procedures and chin implants each year. Then look at the
plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a
sense of who can deliver the results.

You have made a very astute observation that your chin doesn't match up to the rest of your facial profile. I don't know what this costs in the UK, but I can recommend a good surgeon. See Dr. Julian Rowe-Jones for an opinion.
Yes, you are a candidate for a chin implant. 17 is young, but as long as you and your parent/parents understand agree, you could have the procedure done. It is a safe procedure with minimal downtime. The incision is under the chin and not noticeable!
Age 17 is not a problem with chin augmentation as long as the patient is mature enough to have the procedure. You will need parental consent for treatment. Good luck. Donald R. Nunn MD, DDS Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
You appear to be a candidate for chin augmentation but a face to face visit and some other information is required. Since you are a minor, parental consent would be required. Age itself is not restrictive to treatment and can be throughout and after the growth phase. I have done chin implants on children with facial deformities to improve their appearance.

Your photo is not entirely a true profile view, so it is not ideal to evaluate your face. It is possible that you might be a candidate for a small chin implant. The recession of your chin does not appear severe. In the U.S. you would need consent of a parent to be able to undergo surgery at age 17.
